A common complaint of last month’s Dead Space 3 was that it removed the scares of previous games in favor of more action-oriented gameplay. In fact, the only real scares to be had were in the form of hallucinations experienced by new co-op partner John Carver. Now those hallucinations are making their way back to franchise protagonist Isaac Clarke.
EA announced last month that the first piece of DLC for Dead Space 3 would be called “Awakened.” A new trailer released today finally reveals more details on the expansion. Awakened takes place directly after the events of the main game, and features our two heroes facing off against a group of Unitologists on board a derelict ship. The DLC promises plenty of scares so those disappointed in Dead Space 3 might find more to like here.
Dead Space 3 Awakened will launch on PSN, Xbox Live and Origin for PC on March 12.
